Bal (250)

Dior Bal (250) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-glitter over a more matte finish. There were some of the glittery bits that translated onto my skin when I applied the blush on my cheeks, but they weren’t too noticeable and didn’t seem to migrate much over time. The blush had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly powedery texture that was a little messy in the pan but did not look dry or chalky applied to my skin. It applied evenly, blended out easily, and lasted for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$44.00/0.23 oz. - $191.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense, ultra-pigmented color that lasts," though under "formula," the brand states that it has "bold, yet buildable color." Most of the shades I tried were quite pigmented, but the denser, smoother consistency of the powder made it possible to apply less for more buildable coverage as they weren't too powdery nor too stiff in the pan to work with. They applied easily, blended out well, and stayed on for eight to nine hours on me. The powders did have a floral scent to them, though I did not notice the scent when applied to my skin (more in the compact).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
